Elk Grove Teen Center, 8978 Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95624
Description: We’re hosting a special, gender-specific group discussion for pre-teen and teen boys, called Boys Talk. All discussions will be age-appropriate and a variety of views may be shared in this informal, “open chat” forum. Boys will have an opportunity to air concerns and ask questions of adult men in a safe, accepting and nonjudgmental environment.
Youth can benefit from participation in group discussions a number of ways. Sharing ideas in a group setting can promote understanding of other viewpoints, provide new ideas and ways to deal with an issue, reduce or eliminate feelings of isolation (“I’m not alone”), and promote overall improved social, mental and emotional well-being.
Topics: Facilitators will be open to discussing anything the youth participants bring up, no matter how serious. Topics that may be discussed include sports, school, social media, friendship, depression, sexuality, dating, abuse, violence, homelessness, social injustice, mental health and wellness, self-harm and suicide.
